Busy, busy! Posts have been slow because my work life has been keeping me busy. Here's a quick fly-by post to explain what's been happening for those who have been asking:
I am still the Director of Content over at Sepsis Alliance (part-time), an organization that is dedicated to educating the public and healthcare professionals about sepsis. It's frightening how few people know about sepsis, yet it touches so many lives.
In addition to working with SA, this past May, I started working with the Partnership for Palliative Care as their Content Strategist (also part-time). As a nurse who worked in hospice nurse, this particular organization is doing work that I strongly believe in. It also has the same challenges that Sepsis Alliance has in some ways. The word "sepsis" is not known by many in North America and many who have heard the word don't know what it means. "Palliative care" faces the same issue. Not many people know exactly what it is. They may confuse it with "hospice," which isn't really correct. Hospice is end-of-life care, while palliative care is supportive care that can - and should - be given to anyone who has a life-threatening or serious illness or condition, to help them live as good a life as possible. Palliative care is also given at end-of-life, but it's not solely about end-of-life care.
And then there's my regular writing. I've been writing some articles, paid blog posts, and more.
If you have any ideas you would like to see me cover in this blog, leave it in the comments, and I'll see what I can do. I want to write about topics that you are curious about.
